Finding passwords saved in Chrome

Finding passwords saved in Chrome is surprisingly easy, Google security lead sees no issue

Most browsers will ask if you want your passwords saved so when you’re next jumping around the web, logging into sites is that bit easier. Of course, you’d like think those passwords are squirreled away where no one can dig them up, but in Chrome they’re pretty easy to find. As highlighted by software developer Elliott Kember recently, getting access to the list of saved passwords requires only that you point the browser at “chrome://settings/passwords” (or simply find the password management option in advanced settings) and click on one of the saved entries. A small “show” button will then appear next to the hidden password — hit that and it’ll be revealed.
